  1. I’m looking for some advice regarding my current situation. I’ve been self-employed for the last 7 years but have never registered with HMRC. My earnings are very modest (around £1k-2k each year), well below the Personal Allowance, so I do not owe any outstanding tax. Regrettably, I was still claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance for a period of around 10 months whilst the self-employed work began. (A few photography jobs - a hobby that turned into paid work - over the course of these 10 months). Once it became clear the work was ongoing and semi-regular I stopped claiming the JSA. I want to now enter full or part-time employment and stop being self-employed and as I see it I have two options: Contact HMRC and tell them about the last 7 years of self-employment, but I’m assuming they’ll pick up on the JSA crossover period straight away. Any advice on what I could expect, consequence-wise from this? Or alternatively, is it a feasible/sensible idea to just proceed with finding a new job, like I haven’t been self-employed on a low income for the last 7 years? Am I likely to encounter any issues from that down the road, or from HMRC wondering what I’ve been doing for the last few years?
